In loving memory of Hannah Thomson

By Naomi Thomson

For Hannah Thomson
10/07/88 – 27/12/21 

In December 2021 we lost our beautiful Hannah after a decade long struggle with severe Lupus.

Lupus is a relentless, chronic autoimmune disease that can rob its sufferers of their physical health, mental health, independence and social connection.

Hannah was a regular supporter of the Garvan Institute and their immunology research work, particularly related to Lupus. Every World Lupus Day (May 10) she would encourage friends or family to donate to this cause and to help contribute to the search for a cure.

Last year Hannah wrote: “Today is World Lupus day... so I’m decked out in Purple! Hopefully one day a cure will be found for this disease... but until then hopefully the awareness will spread so we no longer have to suffer in silence... everyday is still a constant battle to stay well and stay alive. Some are in incredible pain, some get by fine and you wouldn’t even have a clue they are sick, but sadly people are still losing their lives- and that just shouldn’t happen in this day and age. The Garvan Institute do incredible research around Lupus and other Autoimmune diseases- (Lupus is under the category of “Immunology”). No pressure to donate- I only put this link up once a year in case anyone would like to. Otherwise just pop on some purple today in support of the day

This World Lupus Day, on her behalf, we are inviting you to donate to the Garvan Institute and support their work towards a world free of this horrible illness. All proceeds will go directly to Garvan and no amount is too little.

You can learn more about Lupus and Garvan’s work here: https://www.garvan.org.au/research/diseases/lupus 

Hannah was the most courageous, loving, wise, generous and supportive mother, sister, daughter and friend, despite the battle she fought every day. We miss her more than words can express but we are forever grateful to have had her in our lives and she continues to inspire and motivate us every day.

Thank you in advance for your time and generosity,
Hannah’s loving family.
